Frequently Asked Questions

What does content-type do?

The "content-type" is an npm package designed for creating and parsing the HTTP Content-Type header according to RFC 7231 protocols. It forms an integral part of web development, ensuring smooth and accurate data communication between client and server. It aids in identifying the type of content being exchanged, such as images, documents, or any other form of data.

How do you use content-type?

Leveraging the "content-type" package in your project is pretty simple and straightforward. After installing the package using npm with the command npm install content-type, you can import it to your JavaScript file using the require function.

To parse a Content-Type header from a string, use the contentType.parse() function like so:

var contentType = require('content-type');
var obj = contentType.parse('image/svg+xml; charset=utf-8');

It returns an object delineating the media type and parameters. For example, in this case, it will return { type: 'image/svg+xml', parameters: {charset: 'utf-8'} }.

You can also parse the Content-Type header directly from request or response objects:

var obj = contentType.parse(req);
var obj = contentType.parse(res);

Likewise, you can format a Content-Type header by providing an object to the contentType.format() function:

var str = contentType.format({ type: 'image/svg+xml', parameters: { charset: 'utf-8' } });

This will return a formatted string 'image/svg+xml; charset=utf-8'.

Where are the content-type docs?

The documentation for the "content-type" package is contained within the README provided in the package's GitHub repository, which is located at: git+https://github.com/jshttp/content-type.git. For more extensive information on each method and function, such as API details and examples, refer to the README file. It offers comprehensive explanations of each feature along with valuable example code to guide you through.
